Bored No More


Kids-can’t live with them and can’t live without them,  but you can keep them reading no matter where they are or what time it is! Your online children’s reading resources are waiting for you.

The Seattle Public Library’s Web site has a Children’s section with great resources and reading ideas for your kids.  There are on-line resources to hear and/or read books. Some of your children will already be familiar with Tumblebooks as it is used in the Seattle Public Schools. And we have developed many booklists to help you choose great books for your family.

Here are a few handy tips for when those rainy “I’m bored” days (inevitably) come along.

Check out the booklists created by our expert children’s librarians and select books to pick up at your local branch library. The reading lists are for children from infant to elementary age.

Why not introduce your children to our on-line books for kids? They can listen to the books in English, Spanish or French and/or read them to you!

At  the Children’s Database and Website page, you can select both audio and video books to read along with your kids. Choose “Tumblebook Library“. 
You’ll be asked to log in with your library card and PIN number. You may select animated, talking picture books for preschool and elementary age children. The site includes some books in Spanish and French. Great resource!
On the same page, try the “Bookflix” link. You’ll be carried to a site which allows you to see video picture books paired with related nonfiction books for preschool and elementary age children. This site also includes some books in Spanish. Again, what a great resource!

See how much fun you can have listening to and reading books with your child. These resources are available 24/7 so you never have to worry if your local branch library is open or closed-your on-line library is always waiting for you!

Want more?  Check out a whole page of  “What’s New for all ages in Books/Music CDs/DVDs/Books on CD. 

We get new material every day. Who’s bored now?

Questions? Call your branch library or the downtown Central Library Children’s Services Department at 386-4675.
